Hello and welcome. I apologize that no one responded to you sooner. Different experts come on at various times. I just logged on and saw your question. My name is ***** ***** I'm a biologist with a special interest in reptiles. From what you have described, I'm afraid it does sound like Claude is dead to or near death. If he hasn't shown any sign of life by now, try pinching one of his back toes. There should be some reflexive movement in a live beardie. If there is, or if he has shown other signs of life, you can give him a soak in a shallow bath consistenting of 1/2 Pedialyte and 1/2 water at about 100*F. Be sure to supervise closely. If he turns out that he is alive, it would be best to see your vet as soon as possible. If you have more questions, just let me know. I'll be hoping for a good outcome.Anna
